Dunkin’ is on a quest to become a beverage-first, on-the-go brand. Earlier this year, the chain opened its first of 30 “DD” prototype units, with a pickup window for loyalty members and a new tap system that will pour eight cold-prep drinks. The Canton, Mass.-based company is also cutting its food and beverage menu offerings by about 10% to further streamline the ordering experience. As part of a strategic partnership with Waze, travelers who also have the Dunkin’ app can launch the brand’s ordering feature within the navigation software. The QSR is also testing a tiered value menu and other new deals on food and beverages in some markets.
